Kayak adds price forecasts to US and UK fare search, saying it’s better than Bing Travel
US metasearch site Kayak is introducing a price forecast tool for its US and UK users.
Today US metasearch site Kayak is introducing a price forecast tool for its US and UK users.
Kayak’s price predictor is similar to the airfare prediction service pioneered in 2005 by Farecast, which was later acquired by Microsoft and re-branded by Bing Travel as the Bing Travel Price Predictor.
Like Bing’s tool, Kayak’s price forecast tool is integrated into its main search interface. When users run a search, a box pops up with a prediction of whether airfares for the query will rise or fall in the next week.
